Summary

This programme seeks to bring young people from different geographical locations together, connecting cities and rural areas. Whilst together, these young people will learn, work and play together through our interactive theatre methodology. Furthermore they will gain accurate knowledge on Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights issues including Teenage Pregnancy and Contraceptive use. We will work with local youth in the Volta Region, Ho.

Challenge

Teenage Pregnancy rates keep increasing for various reasons. In 2016, The Volta Region recorded the second highest of 10,296 pregnancies representing 15.0%, according to a Ghana Health Service report on Antenatal care registrants. Over the last years, the Government of Ghana has made some commitments to prevent/reduce teenage pregnancy rates nationally. Whilst it is commendable, it's insufficient to address the Sexual and Reproductive Health needs of young people in the rural areas.

Solution

Act for Change uses interactive theatre to affect behavioural change on major social concerns especially pertaining to the youth. This project will increase the Sexual and Reproductive Health knowledge of local youth especially on contraception and promote the use of contraceptives to reduce or prevent teenage pregnancies. The participants will also share the knowledge they gained with other young people.

Long-Term Impact

The project will provide accurate information on Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights issues to 90 young people and reach out to over 500 young through various activities, which will reduce teenage pregnancy rates. It will also create the demand for Family Planning services.

Additional Documentation

This project has provided additional documentation in a Microsoft Word file (projdoc.doc).
